Visit the Glendalough monastic site and Baltinglass Abbey, and enjoy a scenic drive across the Wicklow Gap. You will also see a working sheep farm deep in the heart of Wicklow.


  • Discover the dramatic Baltinglass Abbey
  • Learn how a real sheep farm functions
  • Marvel at the beautiful Wicklow Mountains


Your day tour to Wicklow departs from Suffolk Street, outside the old stone church, in Dublin. The first stop is Baltinglass, where you will have half an hour to grab a coffee and look around the 12th-century abbey founded by the King of Leinster. This is a fantastic ruin with a combination of Cistercian and Irish Romanesque architecture. The arches are the abbey's most prominent feature, with alternate round and square pillars. Explore the ruins and discover some intricate carvings. Experience the working side of Wicklow with a visit to a working Irish sheep farm. Meet your friendly local farmer Ed, who will introduce you to his life, from the diverse farming practices of sheep farming to organic vegetable growing. The highlight of this stop is a sheepdog exhibition where farmer Ed will corral the sheep with his trusty border collies. After a scenic rural drive, stop off at Lynham's of Laragh for lunch (lunch not included). Then head to the beautiful valley and monastic site of Glendalough, where Saint Kevin settled in the 6th century. Here you will have 1.5 hours to discover the area. Continue through the scenic Wicklow Gap, journeying along the military road which was built after the 1798 rebellion in an attempt to flush out the rebels hiding in the Wicklow Mountains. Take your picture at the 'P.S. I Love You' bridge and see Lough Tay, surrounded by blanket bog and mountain peaks.
